this book provides many useful approaches, checklists and models for managing staff development which could prove helpful to those involved in this area of higher education. Studies in Higher Education Managing Staff Development is a handbook to help university and college managers in their planning, delivery and evaluation of staff development. It is distinctive in its coverage of development for all functions in higher education: educational development, management training and professional training for all groups of staff including administrators, technicians, managers, researchers and tutors. It focuses on the manager's role and responsibilities in respect of all staff (rather than on a particular group or function) and concentrates on the full cycle of planning, execution and review of staff development to ensure its benefits for both individuals and the institutions. It is a practical guide that includes working examples of programmes and activities and covers the entire range of staff development from individual personal development through departmental and faculty-based activities to national developments and examples. Managing Staff Development is an invaluable resource for heads of department, senior managers, directors of central services, and staff responsible for managing personal and professional development within universities and colleges.
